Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles may be dead and gone, but that doesn't stop fans wondering just what would've happened following the second season cliffhanger. Thankfully, former executive producer James Middleton is here to hint at the answer.
Talking to SciFi Wire about how the writers had planned to follow up on John Connor's surprise leap into the future at the end of the final episode of the season, he said,
[I]n the actual footage of the show, we see that Derek doesn't recognize [John.] So, by jumping into this future, he has erased his existence in a certain way, and we see that. We see that nobody recognizes him... If we had gotten a third season, I should say, we definitely would have explored what it all meant, but I think there's a great moment where we see Allison [Summer Glau], and John's look to her is very meaningful. I think that also would have been a great thing in terms of dramatic potential. Like I said, the show has ended, and it would all be speculation, and I really don't want to raise anybody's expectations.
Sure, tell us that something would've been a "great thing in terms of dramatic potential," and then tell us that you don't want to raise expectations? You big tease...
